PIX11 Features Plaza Elementary School

Students Create 12-Month Calendar and Raise Money for the African American Museum of Nassau County

Students and staff at Plaza Elementary School wanted to do something for a good cause and also find a way to celebrate the diversity of the Baldwin community throughout the whole year, rather than just one month. The school’s Student Council recently organized a unique and beautiful fundraiser by creating "Black History Is More Than a Month" calendars designed by fellow students. Each month features students’ artwork of inspiring individuals and messages. The calendars were sold to the community, and the money raised will be donated to the African American Museum of Nassau County.
